compoundfractur:

Fasciotomy to relieve Compartment Syndrome resulting from a rattlesnake bite. The snake venom caused the muscles on the bitten arm to swell uncontrollably which can lead to something called compartment syndrome. The muscles are surrounded by connective tissue called fascia that act like a sheath. In the case of compartment syndrome, the muscles have swollen inside this sheath of fascia which prevents any sort of relief for the inflammed tissue because the fascia isn’t very elastic. Surgeons must go in and cut open the fascia to allow the muscles to expand, otherwise the intense internal pressure prevents blood flow to the tissues causing more damage to muscles and nerves. Once the swelling recedes the patient will undergo a skin graft to cover the open wound.

A donor heart beating in a mechanical system which keeps it warm, oxygenated, with nutrient enriched blood pumping through.

A living heart, when not connected to a nervous system or body, will still beat. As long as it gets its oxygen somehow, as long as it is nourished, it will beat without a body.
As long as it lives.

This is an example of a feral man (isolated from human communities, raised by animals).
Here are some facts about feral people you probably don’t know.
feral children are never able to properly learn human language.
once they are passed that critical learning person (from age 2-5) that’s it, it’s over. they will never be able to communicate normally.
they are able to communicate with their animal family in ways such as a growl
they become integrated with the environment. 
for example, the case of the Victor of Aveyron, was a feral boy. when brought into a warm home, he hated it. he tried to escape numerous times and frolicked around naked in the snow. 
feral children may never learn how to walk upright because as said before they passed the critical learning period
they show disinterest around the people around them, and prefer the companion of their animal family
their skin and feet have evolved to suit their respective environment. for example, strong calluses at the feet for running around the forest. 

What do you do if you look up and see homeboy running at you like that?

That’s fucking scary to think about.
